USAID’s MCSP and WHO evidence brief: Postnatal Care for Mothers and Newborns

USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) along with World Health Organization is excited to introduce our latest evidence brief, Postnatal Care for Mothers and Newborns.

This evidence brief provides highlights and key messages from World Health Organization’s 2013 Guidelines on postnatal care for mothers and newborns. These updated guidelines address the timing and content of postnatal care for mothers with a special focus on resource-limited settings in low- and middle-income countries. This brief is intended for policy-makers, programme managers, educators and providers who care for women and newborns after birth.
